Naylor acquires Raglan

Published:  30 January, 2015

Naylor Drainage has acquired the business and assets of plastic raw material processor Raglan.

Naylor is a fourth-generation family business based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, and manufactures clay and plastic pipes for sewerage, industrial effluent, surface water and cable ducting.

Raglan, a supplier of Naylor, is a processor and supplier of plastic raw materials – primarily PVC – based in Hyde, Cheshire. Raglan’s Paul Parker has joined Naylor as general manager of the new business, Naylor Polymers, which will trade as a division of Naylor Drainage Ltd.

Chief executive Edward Naylor said: “This acquisition will allow Naylor to strengthen our supply chain at the same time as developing a business to supply third parties with a range of high-quality materials in pelletised and pulverised form.”
